The 5 Most Popular Summer Hairstyles

July 7, 2017

Hi everyone!

It’s Diano from the River Oaks salon — and here we are in the first beautiful days of summer. As we dive into the heat and humidity, I want to share my take on some of the most popular hairstyles of the season. But before I do, I should give you some context for how I approach these styles.

  • These “takes” can change based on my clients’ needs, expectations, and desires.
  • I want to create something for you that you love.
  • Together, we’re going to create a stylish, fashionable, fun, and easy hairstyle.

The Five Most Popular Summer Hairstyles

1. Pixie Cut

What Makes the Pixie Cut Great?

It’s lightweight, low-maintenance, and offers you more freedom. You’ll use considerably fewer haircare products and save on time in the mornings, making it a true wash-and-go style. It’s great for a power look and allows you to play with different color trends. If you’re looking to stand out, the pixie cut helps to accentuate facial features.

Take Into Consideration…

You may be seeing your stylist more often for quick trims and touch-ups — and you may need to wash your hair more often due to the higher concentration of natural oils.

 

2. Bangs

Why Should I Get Bangs This Summer?

Yes, bangs are a commitment game-changer, but there are so many styles to choose. From blunt (bold!) to sweeping (face-framing and romantic!) to the fringe (softer! choppier!), bangs can be the main focus of your look. They shape and enhance the eyes, and for those looking to cover your forehead, this is a simple solution.

Take Into Consideration…

Unless you plan on growing them out, bangs need touch-ups frequently. Contrary to popular frustration with “in-between” bangs, if you are growing them out, I can create fun ways to maintain them easily.

At Curls Night Out, the most asked for look was — without a doubt — “the Kate.” This versatile look can be worn on curly or straight hair, on land or sea, and in the office or to a night out with friends. One of the most common questions we received during Curls Night Out was, “how can I wear ‘the Kate’ with second-day hair?”

Our talented Hill Country Galleria stylist, Virginia, showed us how to take your beachy second-day hair to the next level with this bohemian faux-braid tutorial. Get the look now.

milk + honey Picks: Best of Oscars 2016 Beauty

February 29, 2016

That’s a wrap on awards season — and the Oscars served as the icing on the cake. Leo finally took home his first statue, Stacey Dash made us scratch our heads, and of course, the gowns and glamour took center stage during the most fun part of the night: the red carpet. Here are our Oscars 2016 beauty winners: a well-rounded mix of unexpected hair accents, beautiful styling, and bold makeup choices. Do you agree? Have another “best of” to add? Leave yours in the comments below.

Best Use of Platinum: Jennifer Lawrence

We couldn’t help but stare at Lawrence’s gorgeous platinum lob, which served as a stark contrast to the delicate lace neckline of her gown.

Best Braid of the Night: Olivia Wilde

Wilde’s side-parted braid headband meets braid-bun proved (once more) that opting for something a little more bohemian can be equally as scene-stealing and elegant as a more traditional, slicked-back updo.

Best Interpretation of a Mohawk: Kerry Washington

Washington is no stranger to a smoldering red-carpet look, but this time around, she edged it up via “glamorous mohawk updo.” Or at least, that’s what we’re calling it.  Pair it with sultry black eyeliner and a nude lip, and you’re all set.

Best Surfer Babe Look: Margot Robbie

What else can you say about Robbie’s beachy, tousled hair? It’s not messy but it’s certainly not polished. We love that it fits in perfectly with her warm, golden tones and gilded dress. To us, this look screams “make your appointment for the American Wave.”

Best Sweet + Simple Look: Alicia Vikander

Screen Shot 2016-02-29 at 12.44.39 PM

At first glance, Vikander’s simple half-updo seemed an almost too-casual look for the red carpet, but a second side view reveals that she styled her strands in a sweet, unexpected half-bun.

Best Use of a Hair Accessory: Brie Larson

Screen Shot 2016-02-29 at 12.50.28 PM

Oscar-winning Larson deserves another round of applause for this genius use of a hair accessory. She wore a stunning diamond-encrusted comb with floral accents in her half-up/half-down hair, providing just the right amount of ‘wow’ factor to an otherwise low-key hairstyle.

Best Use of Green Eyeshadow: Rachel McAdams

McAdams never fails to impress us, but tonight’s look made us green with envy. Her smoky emerald shadow (Chanel’s Long Wear Luminous Eye Shadow in Griffith Green) on her lower lash line was the perfect accent to a stunning gown.

New Service Alert! The American Wave…

February 1, 2016

For hair that has curl, texture, body, and movement, it’s time to join the American Wave movement. Available exclusively at our Arboretum Market location with stylists Susanna and Krystal, this new, damage-free, texturizing service creates soft, natural-looking waves and curls.

1

Perm vs. American Wave

Traditionally, perms create tight, patterned curls by using harsh chemicals in the hair. The American Wave treatment uses different styling tools, such as soft Flexi rods which allow the stylist to create looser more natural-looking curls and waves. Plus, this service doesn’t cause damage to your hair. After the service, the wave will continue to drop and loosen the curl for up to four weeks. This allows the hair to grow out nicely, creating that tousled, beachy look.

For a step-by-step look, check out the ARROJO American Wave video.

Which hair types are best for American Wave?

All hair types are welcomed to try the American Wave. Recently, the American Wave launched the new American Color Wave, which is perfect for clients with color-treated hair.

You’re ready to try the American Wave, now what?

Before booking your American Wave appointment, please call 512.236.1115 to schedule a consultation with our stylists. This service takes about three hours and will transform the way you look. Along with the American Wave service, clients will also receive one complimentary blowout to be used seven days after the service. During this time, our stylist will help you find the perfect shampoo, conditioners, and styling products for your new look.

P.S. the Kevin Murphy Resort Spray is a fantastic choice to quickly enhance and hold the curl.
